Bullshit and Random Banter / Additional Contributions for USMC Trip Bingo
« on: September 04, 2018, 09:05:26 PM »
To add to the list in the Font bullshit book to allow for creation of future tired joke / USMC bullshit bingo games.....

(Disclaimer: I only wrote in the Font BS book after finishing my bottle of wine each night. I may repeat myself)

So the list:

- There's an echo in here
- The game where you put your hand up for no reason just to see how many people copy you (snappy title I know)
- When Novelty incorrectly uses "hashtag" I.E. "just sayin' 'ashtag"

3 years later. Once again to point out to Pip that the dates were displayed from the start of the academic year for all to see on to forum.

Not that I hold grudges ;)

On the topic of inclusion.... It looks like my very un-inclusive, non PC profile picture has gone willy tits in my absence.. It displays all weird on screen now.... I'm blaming millenials for this.

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the forum, this should replace facebook soon.

It is the future.

I have visited Facebook HQ in San Fran, they were all very concerned about this upcoming website "surrey climbs" it's true....

I'll add the cost of this onto my running spreadsheet from over the year if that's ok.

Diary / Roaches Trip 15/4 - 17/4
« on: April 05, 2016, 02:54:24 PM »
Time to go play on some grit. The roaches is my favourite crag north of Bristol so well worth a visit for anyone who hasn't been before.
Valkyrie before breakfast anyone?

We will probably camp which is 3 a night. The campsite is basic but is a short walk to a good pub according to expert* reviews.
We will do club food saturday night.
Assuming we have a full bus of 9 people cost will be 32 assuming you eat club food (and that the campsite is indeed still 3 a night)To get yourself a bus seat please pay a 20 deposit into the USMC account or in cash to me as per usual. There is possibly the potential to move to a 14 seater bus if we need it.

Latest Splosh news:
[/size]Right we currently have 13 people on buses. Therefore most cost effective solution is to run both buses and then only use the 14 seater when we're down there to save on mileage (this should keep cost in line with the vague estimate quoted once you include the fact club is subsiding bus this year by around 150).[/color]
[/size]What does this mean?
There is effectively only ONE SPACE LEFT ON BUSES FOR SPLOSH.
After that if you wanted to come I'd be looking to have 17+ people wanting to come on the buses before anyone else gets a space. otherwise we're running two half full buses for a whole week instead of just one full one in Cornwall.
Does that make any sense?
TL;DR. Basically only 1 space left on buses. Unless 4 more people minimum want to come.

No probs, will head down after morning rush from Brum. Just let me know what sort of time you'll be aiming to leave/packing the bus etc :)

Can't really recall what time we left last year but definitely wouldn't want to be any later than 1700.

Okay so 22nd is my first day of annual leave. If someone has a driveway I could park on reasonably close to uni that would be most helpful. I'm more than happy to drive one of the buses (either), let me know. Would preferably like a bus space as I don't fancy the drive alone.

Yay Splosh!

Bus drivers always welcomed!

Think you driving tuesday bus might be best choice.

It's splosh time!

For those STILL not in the loop this is one of the biggest trips of the year. A week in cornwall climbing granite sea cliffs. What more could you want?

Ohhh a night devoted to the consumption of filthy fried chicken and mead in a poorly lit room? Say no more. MMMEEEEEAAAAADERY. The meadery is a drinking highlight of the year. Dinner and as much mead as you can shake a shitty stick at.

This thread may give some useful advice for splosh virgins (maybe take most of this advice with a pinch of salt, no guarantee or liability offered or implied ;)
Plan is to take two buses one leaving tuesday (22nd march) afternoon for a bonus day of climbing the other on the wednesday to return the following wednesday.

Want to come? Ofc you do.

If so do the following:
1) Pay deposit of 50 into club a/c and post ref below or give me cash - deposit gets you your bus space!
2) Say which bus you want
3) Post in thread if you need to borrow gear (separate threads to make life easier)

4) post in that same thread ^ whether you want meat (chicken) or veggie dinner at meadery.

For those coming by car. Camping cost is likely to be 7 a night again tbc. Please give me some rough idea of when you might appear and disappear. And post in this thread that you / others in your car are coming to meadery (or if you need tent spaces etc)

Any other questions?

Get on it!

Please only post in this thread to say you need to borrow tent, roll matt, or sleeping bag (fairly limited supply)

and / or to say you will be attending the meadery. Two food options for meadery: meat and not.

There should be a maximum of one post per person in this thread. Any ramblings or bullshit will be purged to keep this easy to look back at for me!

Reet. Hut is viable bus probably not so.

New plan is to go in cars.


Ali's Car:
(Ninja or Marie???)

Lucas / Twindle's car:
Joe P

I'll send club money for the hall with Joe. I'll also do some shopping for club food. Pay your driver your fuel money directly. Everything else we will square up when you get back (Hall cost changes depending on exact number of people going)

For anyone that's paid club. Once you've paid for accom and dinner anything that's left you can either have back or keep as credit.

Lucas or Twindle probably worth one of you going to locker friday evening for a few bits? I'll give you key. The kitchen has plates mugs etc but a big pan and some spices etc are probably useful.

Mark and Hannah: Either let me know in the next 2 days if you intend to be there. If you do decide saturday morning you fancy it. Take some cash to pay for accom and food. (I expect 10 each will cover, I've forgotten figures though)

Can you reserve a space for me please.

I'm also happy to drive the bus. Oh and what time are you planning to leave in the morning ?

I've paid the 15 deposit. Reference: USMC Lucas


early. I'm not going so I don't care but would suggest 8am?

4 way tie.

Joe P was the first person I spoke to after polls closed and he forgot to vote but would have voted for swanage.

So it's going to swanage.

Getting out of your tent in the morning can often mean you get cold. So bring your sleeping bag with you. But what if it gets wet? Well tesco carrier bags over the feet make a stylish addition and will ensure ideal thermal environment in which to enjoy your coffee.

Also: Just because someone is a full grown adult doesn't mean they might not need their gloves tying together onto a piece of a string and looping through their jacket...

  • The correct way to watch a nice sunset is with your trousers down.

For maximum enjoyment (especially Tor / Tessa's enjoyment ) I suggest replacing trousers with a tri suit worn without pants....
